In the case in which you are the bride and the groom and you discuss with the guests that intend on taking photos in the bridal day, and then suggest these hints and ideas to them – we’re sure that they will listen and so, end up with the pictures that you have always been dreaming of.
Even though you will laugh when you will observe the shots taken by your guests and friends, suggest them that they should not take this too serious and for this matter, if they take pictures they should not omit to have fun. Having fun is an essential part even if your wedding attendants take pictures. The most important thing for you is to observe your wedding attendants and guests that they are having fun, instead of getting stressed with the pictures – due to the fact that they did not end up as they wished.
Talk with the wedding attendants and if they really want to play the role of the wedding photographer make sure they have the appropriate utensils and for this matter, there should be an appropriate instrument that can be set accordingly to the light, the environment and the type of photo you want to take. If the instrument doesn’t turn out to be that useful and it isn’t that advanced, then we totally recommend you to let it home!
In the other case, in which the wedding guest has a useful instrument, then make sure that he or she knows how to use it. Exercise the photos in details, in different environments or lighted rooms, exactly how the environment is in the church or wherever you decide to take photos and there’s also the case in which you have to catch persons in movement and see if you can rely on your apparatus for this type of pictures.
Try also finding an appropriate angle for taking the pictures…. Even if the best corners are going to be occupied by the professional wedding photographers, you can ask the person engaged of the wedding reception salon to make a special spot where the people who want to take shots can stand and capture the entire salon or fragments.
In this manner, you will make sure that the shots will end up as you have been wishing and that your wedding guests are not going to be annoyed by the multitude of flashes of the amateur photographers.
So, there are not so many rules that need to be respected by the amateur wedding photographers and if you know for sure that there are some people who would love to take some shots in the bridal day, and then offer these pieces of advice to them.
Such details are really important and if they keep these in mind, surely you will end up with the right wedding photo albums. Let us also add that not only are you going to end up with a multitude of photos from the big day, but you will be able to observe different angles from the most important event in your life time. Sometimes the quality doesn’t matter that much and if you receive fragments from the most important day in your life, then it’s just great!
